This journal is an aid to proclaim Jesus’s death, burial, and resurrection to make disciples by teaching all of Jesus’s commands so that the church is devoted to the Apostles’ doctrine, fellowship, the breaking of bread, and prayers (Matt 28:19–20; Acts 2:38–47; 1 Cor 15:1–4).

I do believe in the triune God, the inerrancy of the Scriptures, and salvation by grace through faith through the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Salvation by faith includes dying to the old self of sin, being buried with Christ in baptism, and rising to live in the newness life (Rom 6:4–6; Eph 2:4–6; Col 2:12–13). Salvation is for the hope of the faithful rising as Christ rose from the dead (Rom 8:11; 1 Cor 15:53). If you want to see the details of my faith, then please see this article: “Ten Clear Characteristics of the Church of Christ.“
Why “Seeing God’s Breath”?
By “Seeing God’s Breath,” this publication recognizes the Scriptures as the breath of God as Christ’s Spirit revealed all truth through the Scriptures to make each person of God complete unto every good work (2 Tim 3:16–17). Here is my first article from 2007 and the basis for the title of this site: “A Defense of 2 Timothy 3:16 & 17.”
